Our History

About Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center

Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center is a 30-bed critical access hospital, located in Elgin, North Dakota, with a 24/7 emergency room.

Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center opened in 1977, supported by a dedicated community which built the new medical facility to replace an outdated Lorenzen Memorial Hospital, which had operated since the 1940s. The new hospital was named to honor Dr. M.S. Jacobson for his dedication and support of health care in the area.

The Elgin Community Clinic, attached to the hospital, opened in 1986. In 2006, Jacobson Memorial Hospital Care Center added a satellite clinic in Glen Ullin.

The hospital is a nonprofit corporation overseen by a board of directors, elected by a vote of hospital shareholders.
